Incoming traffic referral problem

In December my anylitics stopped tracking inbound ppl from SlickDeal.net.  They seem to be going into the direct statistics.  Any idea how to get SD traffic to register properly again?

Hi,

 

Has that site switched to https in December and your site is still http? Secure websites are not sending referral data to non-secure websites.

You need to move to https too in order to fix the issue. Hope this helps.

Ok thanks for the tip I made the change over to https two days ago. Now some SlickDeals refferalls are coming in but still seems really light.  I'm pretty sure half of my traffic and sales are coming from there but only 33 refferals with 1 purchase is showing in analytics for yesterday.  Any ideas?
